6clicks has long supported Defence Industry Security Program (DISP) members and our advisory partners work with the Defence Security Principles Framework (DSPF). The 6clicks platform provides Audit & Assessment and program management features combined with content such as the PSPF to make it easier.
6clicks is a platform that will help you to replace the spreadsheet nightmare and document drain typically associated with maintaining compliance to DISP membership requirements. Instead, you can make compliance a by-product of operating an effective security program.

This boils down to meeting the DISP eligibility and suitability requirements found in Control 16.1 along with Annex B (the Suitability Matrix).
The eligibility requirements include:

Ongoing suitability requirements include:
6clicks has recently made available the Suitability Requirements from Annex B as an Audit & Assessment Template in the 6clicks content library.
Along with a DISP Cyber Questionnaire that must be submitted to Defence upon request as a part of assurance activities.
These two new resources add to the DSPF and other useful content available in the 6clicks content library including the ASD Essential 8, the ISM and the PSPF.
